Geology and Ecology of Soils
Nick Bader, Whitman College
Soils provide nutrients, water and support for growing plants, host an amazing variety of organisms, and even influence global climate. This class will focus on the dynamic systems in soil and on the interactions ...
Peter Riemersma, Grand Valley State University
GEOhydrology is the study of groundwater and its physical and chemical interactions with the physical environment. The course will be focused on those geologic principles that govern the occurrence, movement and ...
Principles of Soil Science
Colin Robins, Claremont McKenna College
Soils are complex features that reflect both past and present environmental conditions. This course is an intensive survey of the properties, genesis, and spatial distribution of soils, emphasizing key applications ...
Tara Kulkarni, Norwich University
A course that covers the basic principles of groundwater flow, including its development and protection as a natural resource, and the assessment and remediation of groundwater contamination.
Hydrology and Water Resources
Kaye Savage, Wofford College
This course is divided into three parts – surface water, ground water, and regional studies. We meet jointly for the regional studies part with an economics class (Water: Law, Economics and Policy) and ...
Michael Stapleton, Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania
This course will provide a general overview of geochemical systems and their interactions among atmospheric, aqueous, and near surface environments. Complex subjects will be developed gradually beginning with the ...
Jodi Ryder, Central Michigan University
This course is an introduction to the study of groundwater: groundwater flow, well hydraulics, groundwater quality and pollution, and resource exploration, evaluation, and management. The course format is 2x50 ...
Stephanie Ewing, Montana State University-Bozeman
We explore approaches to evaluating soil development using concepts of soil age and residence time, and variation of soil properties with climate, geomorphic and hydrologic context, plant communities, and parent ...
Fundamentals of Water Quality
Thomas Meixner, The University of Arizona
Introduction to chemical processes affecting the behavior of major and minor chemical species in the aquatic environment. Physical, equilibrium, inorganic/organic, and analytical principles as applied to natural ...
Jean Moran, California State University-East Bay
This course covers physical and chemical hydrogeology. Practical, laboratory exercises are quantitative, requiring use of spreadsheet programs and carrying out calculations.
